College and Career Readiness Definitions
The goal of the Oklahoma Academic Standards is to prepare all students to be college and career ready upon graduation from high school. Beginning in 2017, school districts can choose whether to have their high school juniors take the ACT or the SAT free of charge. In 2017-2018, all juniors will be required to take one of these college- and career- readiness exams. If a student meets the ACT cut score (or a cut score on another valid measure), they may be placed in a college-level courses without additional placement testing. Beginning in 2017-2018 the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) will pilot the SREB Math Ready Senior Transition Course, and will provide students at all grade levels remediation opportunities to successfully progress to and through college-level English courses.
